Off and on I continue to join hexagons together and when I "measured" up on top of the blanket box I was very happy to see that I am near the end.
The dark 'holes' you can see in this shot are gaps that need filling, then one more such row, the edge and the backing. Yes! The end is in sight. Wanting a Granny's Quilt effect means I have been trying to be random. What an oxymoron that is! Random happens and is not created. However I am pleased with progress so far - indeed I am now officially addicted and until Saturday when I have more time, The Mermaid's Chest has been laid aside and I am patching.
The HD3QBEM has some new toys after a visit to the Low Vision Specialist and can once again read large print books and her Bible, do her crosswords and sudoku and keep up to date on the Royal news in her weekly magazine - all with the aid of her fancy German magnifier.
And for her knitting, a fancy neck slung frame with a built in light so now she can thread needles (darning needles with wool you understand) and pick up the occasional dropped stitch. We are both very happy and grateful to the German engineers at Zeiss. And as an aside, we will take out shares in the Electricity company ;-) All the lights on in our room at night would make any good ecologist cringe!
Have a good evening everyone.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
